C++ quiz --- STL tricks

What's the point of that? What's wrong with std::thread?A lot of STL/Boost classes are nothing more thatn wrappers over OS provided functionality anyway.

Shared ptr

Do you really need shared_ptr? I've rarely seen a case where it's justifiably used. Usually it's down to the programmer seeing it as a silver bullet and being unable to understand the lifetimes of objects is his own software.

The opposite extreme would have each function ensure that every possible error in inputs or internally received outputs of other...

<t>They approached me about joining (London). They didn't seem right for me... 'flat organisation', unspecific software skills requirements, no idea about the money.Some of what they do would probably require security clearance.

My workplace uses bitbucket. It's quite nice, sometimes it throws a wobbler if there are large diffs for a pull request.

Extracting data points from a graph image

<t>If you're doing image analysis the Y component of the RGB -> YUV conversion might be of more use. In fact, JPEGs are natively YUV.Anyway, your problem is that the jpeg compression has introduced artefacts into the image? Is the real value RGB(255, 0, 0) or has the compression changed that too? </t>
